Enjoy drinks on the observation deck before settling into the main saloon for dinner with the Captain followed by an itinerary briefing for the upcoming days. Day 2: Start your day with an alfresco breakfast on the upper observation deck or in the main saloon as we set sail to drop anchor near Whitsunday Island.

Jump back on Island Adventurer for a short cruise up to Tongue Bay and the Hill Inlet Lookout Track. Marvel at the marbled ever-changing patterns created by shallow blue water and moving white silica sand. Refuel with lunch on Whitsunday Explorer as we set sail to Hook Passage. From here we’ll launch the Island Adventurer to explore Nara Inlet and the ancient rock wall paintings of the indigenous Ngaro people. Our final destination for the day is Langford Island – the perfect spot for snorkelling with sheltered waters and coral systems teeming with vibrant marine life including a large population of green turtles. Back onboard our small ship take in the sunset as we cruise to Long Island to anchor. Enjoy drinks and dinner in the main saloon at your leisure, why not treat yourself to a nightcapunder the stars on the observation deck. Day 3: Enjoy breakfast alfresco or in the main saloon.
